Jerry cans NOT on tire carrier?
Obviously a lot of people mount their jerry cans to the tire carrier/rear bumper. I'm wondering, for those of you who don't, where DO you put them? I've seen the various saddle bag type carriers hanging on the sides either in the rear or forward of the doors. A buddy was running them on his CJ5 which worked great until he tipped it and the can got crushed (luckily not igniting). What other better solutions have people come up with?
My question stems from my desire to get a new rear bumper/carrier. I love the Bulletproof, but don't want the spare sticking way off the back (due to jerry cans). A buddy is running the Tomken setup and it is just waaaaay out there. I've seen the setups (such as Durango's) with the cans to the sides of the tire. But I haven't found this setup on a bumper I love. I am not skilled enough to fab my own bumper setup. Ideas?
